A crowd overflowed the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College last night for the Community Board 11 Land Use Committee's public hearing on the proposed East Harlem neighborhood rezoning. This is the first public testimony of the seven-month public review process, the first chance for the community to respond publicly to the City's plans and, most importantly, a chance for the City to show whether it is in fact adopting a community-based planning approach to rezonings.
